Jersey v Falcons on Saturday - CUP

Well we're nearly back!

Whats peoples thoughts on the likely team selection?

Will he put a out a full strength side to start and give every one a run out, then make big changes at half time?

Or will he start a mixed team and change it all at half time?

Probably the latter as Deano's publicly announced that these cup games are being treated as "pre season friendlies"
Don't be surprised if we lose 1 or 2 of these games (as we often have pre season)

We can treat the game as a preseason friendly but I doubt the competition rules will allow more than the usual 8 substitutes. On that basis I would expect a mix and match team with a very different 15 selection for the second game and something closer to best available for the third

At the risk of sounding disloyal that could be the final!

I hope a few of the Falcons players make the Friday meet and greet. The old Jersey lads are always welcome but itís a great opportunity for Falcons players to meet their own fans.

Hi CC, the team are in and out on Saturday so sadly won't be around on the Friday. When we visit in the league we'll be there for two nights.

Thanks Mark at least there is virtually no chance of fog this weekend. A two night stay at the end of Feb will give your lads a great opportunity to mix with Falcon's supporters who are over then and as I believe the following weekend has no games scheduled they shouldn't have the pressure to prepare for the next match.

Thats a pretty good side.

Strong combatative back row.
Good mix of experienced guys and young academy produced guys....

And looks to have lots of attacking potential.

Strong side for what is going be a "pre season friendly" looking forward to following the game tomorrow from Antigua!
